I’m pretty sure if it were possible to be there today, there would not be a contrast. That’s very heavy snow country. One of my fondest wishes now is that I will be healthy enough to post more photos of that lake next summer and of the country several miles above it!
I love the contrast here between the warmth of the remaining color and the snow, but it has to be just as beautiful when it’s snow covered. For that matter, it’s surely just as beautiful in spring. We’ll hope you’re in prime trekking condition when the new season rolls around!
